Tierra Linda Ranch is literally on the border of Gilespie and Kerr County but most homes carry a Kerrville address. The county line runs right through the ranch. The closest town in Kerrville, about 8 miles or 15 minutes south. Harper is about 14 miles north and Fredericksburg is about 30 miles northeast. San Antonio is 70 miles or a little over an hour away and is the closest major metropolitan city to the ranch.
The closest amenities include the Shops at the Ridge, which is a garden store and nursery and the Cafe at the Ridge. The Cafe is a great place for locals to gather and enjoy live music, good food, and outdoor dining. The Shops also are home to Wild Flour Bakery and a small marketplace. It’s definitely a Tierra Linda Ranch favorite.
Harper Road is the main road north and south along the ranch. Closer to town are churches, camps, and a couple in-home shops. Once you cross I-10, you’re much closer to town and there are grocery stores and more restaurants along Hwy 27, which runs east and west.
It’s about 7.5 miles or about 15 minutes to get into town on Junction Hwy (27). Once in town, there is a Walmart, Tuesday Morning, Starbucks, H-E-B Grocery, Town and Country Food Stores, Ferr county Produce and several mini-marts and restaurants.
Kerrville has a wide range of local and national restaurants like Pizza Hut, Popeyes, and Fuddruckers with some local favorites like Alpine Lodge Restaurants, Rails a Cafe at the Depot, Pint & Plow Brewing Company and Grape Juice – a wine bar. We really have a lot of restaurant options for being a smaller town on the outskirts of San Antonio. We even get a little ethnic with TwoBo’s Korean BBQ, Thai Ocha, and Mary’s Tacos.
Also in town are medical facilities. The Franklin Clinic is located in the Winwood Village Shopping Center and the Peterson Regional Medical Center is the closest hospital just off Thompson Drive, about 20 minutes from Tierra Linda Ranch.
The closest school is Starkey Elementary and the Fred H Tally Elementary. The Peterson Middle School and Hill Country High School are off Hwy 16, about 15 minutes from the ranch and bus routes pick up along Harper Rd. More on Tierra Linda Ranch Schools
